From the production page on Damn Cheek’s website:

Disturbing, dark and funny by turns, this one-man show follows our protagonist’s diarised descent into insanity.

Diary of a Madman portrays a savage fall through anxiety, paranoia, hallucination and delusion into the depths of psychotic breakdown.

Gogol’s consideration of what we deem as ‘madness’, the mapping of symptoms, the subjective experience of mental illness, the unshakable nature of delusion: all of these are as relevant today as they were in 1835.

We hope to see you online!

All at Relational Spaces.
